Purity in the ocean air, minerals in natural spring water and healing from hot springs are just a few therapeutic gifts from Mother Nature. The less popular Salt Caves have taken the prize for hidden gem. During WWII, salt caves in Germany were used for bomb shelters. Soon doctors discovered improved health conditions in patients that spent extended periods of time inside the caves.
Today salt caves can be visited in man-made facilities at wellness spas all over the world. You might ask, why go through all the trouble of reproducing an exquisite piece of mother nature? The primary reason is because salt therapy works! For decades salt therapy, or halotherapy, has been used as a healing method for upper respiratory issues. The results after a few salt therapy sessions have been undeniably positive for even the worst cases.
What is a Salt Therapy Session?
By now you’ve heard eating too much salt is bad for your health. The keyword here is “eating”. Salt that is consumed but not ingested is actually very beneficial to your health. Salt therapy sessions are an alternative remedy for a variety of ailments including:
- Sinus infections
- Ear infections
- So many more!
At Amabella Wellness Spa a salt therapy session is approximately 45 minutes. Enjoy soothing music while seated in a comfortable lounge chair. A soft salt “steam” is released into the room. You may choose to read, meditate or nap during salt therapy session. The experience has been described as “the ultimate relaxation” and “perfect blend of pampering & healing”. The effects of the salt therapy session will be felt soon after the session ends. Multiple treatments are recommended to get a lasting relief.
